No, you cannot use* annotations in spring. You can use something like resteasy with spring. It is rather easy. If you need I can provide with an example. (Jersey and CXF has good JAX-RS implementations too.)

AFAIK Springsource has no idea to provide an implementation to JAX-RS. So if you want to use the features described in JAX-RS you will not get it directly from spring. But you can develop a rest web service using spring. That's a different story. A question was found on SO on that.
